The San Francisco Social hosted their second annual benefit dinner at the Foreign Cinema on June 7th. The sold out event generated awareness for the 2013 gala coming November 16th, and also served to kickstart fundraising to reach their goal of $100,000 for its beneficiary, Larkin Street Youth Services.
Supervisor Scott Weiner and Larkin Street Youth Services Director Sherilyn Adams inspired guests by emphasizing the importance of young professionals getting involved in their community, and by sharing their personal experiences with the organization.
Anderson Pugash, founder of the San Francisco Social, remarked, “This dinner was an amazing opportunity for the San Francisco Social to expose the next generation of philanthropists to a great organization like Larkin Street Youth Services. I look forward to our big November gala and continuing our efforts to raise funds and awareness for this deserving cause.”
